Wisconsin Microfinance’s mission is to use microfinance principles to help people in the developing world rise out of poverty. The non-profit functions as a bridge to channel tax-deductible charitable donations to approved country-specific microfinance lenders which administer the loans “on the ground.” WI Microfinance is not a typical peer-to-peer lending organization, where repaid loans are returned to the borrower. Rather, repaid loans are returned to a revolving fund administered by the local microfinance lenders and used to fund additional loans and community projects.
